    Goodbye for now

    That’s it for the last 16 stage at Euro 2024.

    And what a way to round out this phase of the competition.

    Turkey have knocked much-fancied Austria out of the tournament and will now face the Netherlands in Berlin on Saturday.

    Thanks for joining our coverage of this game in Leipzig. From me, Adam Hanco*ck, and Kevin Hand, it’s goodbye.

    Netherlands await for Turkey

    The final quarterfinal tie has been decided, with Turkey securing themselves a tie against the Netherlands in Berlin. Those sides last met in World Cup qualifying back in 2021, with the Netherlands winning 6-1 in Amsterdam.

    Strangely enough, that was the same scoreline that Turkey lost by against Austria in a friendly earlier this year.

    Could that be an omen?

  • Disappointment for Austria

    Ralf Rangnick’s side have played brilliantly in this tournament, pulling off some superb results, including a 3-2 win over Netherlands in the group stage.

    Many people were tipping them as a dark horse for the tournament. But they have been dumped out in the last 16 and must now head home.

    Knockout football is a cruel game.

    Turkey march on

    It was a tough ask for Turkey against an in-form Austrian team, but Vincenzo Montella pulled of a coaching masterclass as his side booked their spot in the last eight.

    Great scenes in Leipzig as the Turkish players celebrate on the pitch while their fans sing and dance in the stands. Given the large Turkish community in Germany, there could be quite the party tonight.

    Gunok saves the day

    It’s hard to emphasise just how good that Gunok save was at the end.

    It will be talked about long into the night by the Turkish fans – after they have stopped celebrating, that is.

    It could well be a wild night in Leipzig.

    WHAT. A. SAVE!

    Gunok pulls off a wonder save

    What a save from Gunok!

    Wow.

    Baumgartner directs a header at goal from close range but the Turkey keeper pulls off an incredible one-handed diving save to stop a near certain goal.

    Turkey break at speed

    Turkey break at lightening speed, with Yilmaz slipped in.

    It’s a foot race between the Turkish player and Pentz, and the Austrian keeper wins, sliding to claim the ball.

    This is a frantic finish.

    Another chance for Baumgartner

    Baumgartner gets his head onto a ball into the box once again, this time from a corner. But his effort goes over the bar.

    Turkey are standing strong.

    Gunok comes out to try to punch a cross away. He misses it, allowing Baumgartner to get his head to the ball, but his effort is wide of the target.

    Another change for Turkey

    Kokcu looks in some discomfort, suffering from either a cramp or an injury. It’s hard to tell.

    He limps off to be replaced by Irfan Can Kahveci.

    It appears that Sabitzer was struck by an object while taking a corner a short while ago. Both sets of players have been targeted at corners.

    Unsavoury scenes in Leipzig

    Every corner taker is facing a barrage of cups from the stands at the moment. UEFA won’t look kindly on that sort of behaviour.

    Turkey are just starting to sit a little deeper as this match heads towards a conclusion. They’ll be desperate to hold on to this lead.

    Yilmaz left alone

    Yilmaz does really well to counter on the right, working his way to the byline before crossing the ball inside the box.

    Unfortunately for him, there is not one white shirt in the penalty area.

    Austria pressing for an equaliser

    Gregoritsch is in the thick of the action again.

    He beats the offside trap and has a chance of a header on goal. But it’s a difficult one to get any pace on the ball and it’s a comfortable take for Gunok.
